Sew and then Sew

 I've had the sewing machine out for the last few days.  I had a request to make some of my iPad beanbags and subsequently decided to look for new fabric to add to my stock. I came across this owl print - and I had to have it. 

So, when it came to the Less is More challenge this week, I decided to incorporate  the sewing machine in the creation of my design. Here is the theme:

                                           Three Colours


Three Shades of One Colour


I keep all of my scraps of card in separate colour collections so I went for the blue hues folder.
I chose a Sizzix heart die set to cut the hearts out of card and funky foam. I originally had meant to use the hearts alone but I felt the need to add the central vertical card strips.  These were secured into place with a line of machine stitching.  All that was left to do was to add the sentiment.

Fab card and love your ipad beanie. I'll have to have a go at making one of them, my hands always get sore holding it up. Xx

I'm sorry that I'm SO late in visiting this week, but a new laptop and getting to know new systems has taken up a lot of time!
This is tremendous, I just love the texture.
Thanks so much
